First Look: Gerber Center-Drive Rescue


The Center-Drive Rescue Is An Exciting, New Multi-Tool From Gerber. With 14 Tools, the CDR Is As Feature-Packed As It Gets.

Fun new toys should truly be fun, and the new Center-Drive Rescue from Gerber is as exciting as it gets for a multi-tool today. The CDR is packed tight with 14 tools ranging from a set of spring-loaded needlenose pliers to a file. One of the showpiece tools is the screwdriver with more than a dozen magnetic bits included when you buy the CDR.

There’s an included sheath as part of the package, and you can choose which one is best for you. You have the choice of a MOLLE-compatible sheath or a Berry-compliant sheath so you’ll be able to customize the CDR to fit your needs.

If there is a knock on the CDR it’s that it has been designed solely for the jobsite or campground. While many other multi-tools feature tools meant for the home like a nail file, tweezers, or toothpick, the CDR has been packed with tools to help you get your job done faster.

Overall, this is a well-constructed multi-tool that can take a beating and be your trusty sidekick for decades to come.
